Allan Scott Band releases "Run to You 2.0"!

We are so excited to share our new remix..."Run to You 2.0"!

Sometimes we don't feel lovable or valuable. Why would God want me? Doesn't He see who I am or what I've done? "Run to You 2.0" is a song about how God aggressively pursues us, even when we don't deserve it. Even when we have nothing to offer Him.

"Run To You" EP Hit's #7 on iTunes Christian & Gospel!

Hi Friends!

Today our new album is available everywhere! And thanks to you, the album has already hit #7 on iTunes Christian & Gospel! Thank you!

The lead track from the album is titled "Run To You". I wanted to write a song about how God aggressively pursues us, even when we don't deserve it. He aggressively pursued me when I was not seeking Him. It was not because of my goodness or because of anything that I was doing. After all, I was a drug addict running as far as I could from Him. But He was good to me and saved me.

In the story of the prodigal son, we see a father who ran out to meet his returning son, despite the son's actions. The father's heart was aggressively for him, even in that son's lowest place. In the same way, God's heart is always for us. He always pursues us. Even when we are not "winning". And because we know that He is for us even in those low times, we can have confidence to come to Him boldly in our time of need! 

It is our hope that these songs minister to you and help you experience the love of Jesus in a new way.

The "Run To You EP" is available today at the following online retailers:

Announcing Found & Favored Ministries!

Announcing Found and Favored Ministries

Hello Friends!

This year, God impressed us to start Found and Favored Ministries. Our mission is to release the hurting, struggling, and addicted into the grace and freedom of God. It is our desire to share the message of God’s grace and hope at prisons, rehab centers, churches, and conferences across the country. Hope and Freedom Released in 60 Places

Last year, my team and I ministered at 60 different worship services, conferences, rehabs and retreats. Through a combination of inspiring testimony, biblical teaching, powerful worship, and times of response, we shared how God had brought freedom and hope into our lives. As we did, we saw a common theme among all the places we visited.

At every church service or event, we met folks struggling with guilt and condemnation. They weren’t sure if God really loved them or if God was indeed for them. In addition, some were struggling with substance abuse, and some were struggling with a different addiction. Feeling trapped, hopeless, and ashamed, many had been afraid of admitting their struggle. And there was another group of people. Coming forward, often in desperate tears, were those who were believing, praying and caring for a struggling family member.

o about our ministry:

The Gospel Is Transforming Addicts In 2013, we began to take our ministry into rehab centers across the Northeast, and God began to work in the lives of addicts and alcoholics. We shared the Gospel with them—Jesus had redeemed them, made them royalty, and favored them. What a transformative message!When someone has been down and out, but hears the truth about their worth to God, it can be a world-shaking, life-altering message.  Psalms 34:18 says “The Lord is close to those whose hearts have been broken. He saves those whose spirits have been crushed.”God began to show us that there is such a need to call His sons and daughters home. They feel unloved, they feel unworthy, but they’re still His sons and daughters.Here’s the irony—many of the places that need us the most can’t cover the ministry costs of putting on an event. Nevertheless, that’s where we need to go! Travel, equipment and personnel costs can be thousands of dollars per event. Your support allows us to say YES to the people in desperate need of being set free.

Let’s Set People Free Together

Friends, would you partner with us to meet the needs of those who are addicted, hurting and struggling? Together we can make a greater impact in the lives of those who need to experience the grace and freedom of God. Together we can be the only Jesus that many of these precious people will ever meet.Fourteen years ago I had destroyed my life and thrown everything away. But Jesus saved this drug addict and thief! He changed my name from “loser” to “loved,” and gave me a hope and a future. Since that jail sentence 14 years ago, He has proven over and over that He is for me and is able to restore any situation.

Here are three ways we can set people free together.

Pray: Please pray that we would be sensitive to where the Lord is leading us; pray that God would open up the right doors and close the wrong ones; and pray that we would have right words during ministry times.

Give: Please consider a one-time or monthly tax-deductible financial gift. Your one-time or monthly financial gift of $50, $100, $250 or any amount helps us bring Jesus to the addicted and hurting across the country. Together we can get the message of hope, God’s grace and forgiveness into the places that need it the most.

Be My All: Story Behind The Song

Banner-FBNOW1.png

About "Be My All"2 Corinthians 12:9 states, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."

If you are like me, you have faced seasons of life where you felt weak. Well, those are the very times when I have seen God do amazing things. Those low seasons always turn out to be the best times of momentum and seeing Gods faithfulness in my life! Friends, if you are feeling weak or overwhelmed in an area of your life today, know that you are being set up for SUCCESS. In those very areas and times of weakness, God shows himself as the STRONG one, the God who is able, the God who always succeeds. And He is going to succeed in you! "Be My All" is meant to encourage my brothers and sisters in Christ. God has promised to be everything to us. He is success. He is provision. He is wisdom. And He is in us, working through us and all around us for our good and His glory. So we can relax knowing that He is going to get the job done  even when we can't see the road ahead. He does. He is our vision and we can trust him. He is our all.

"Be my Strength when I am weak. Be my all my, my victory. Be my eyes when I can't see. Be my everything, Be My All..."

Our new song "What You Say" is available online everywhere! We are so excited to share it with you and hope the message of the song really ministers to you...

About "What You Say" You know, God has given every christian the same favored and perfect standing in His eyes as Jesus.. 1 John 4:17b says, "...as He (Jesus) is, so are we in this world." This verse states that our identity is completely wrapped up in who Jesus is. As He is, so are we! So many times in my own life I have been tempted to draw my identity from my past mistakes. As an ex-loser, drug addict and thief, I am so glad that God changed my name to loved, redeemed and favored.  As JESUS is, so am I. And so are YOU! Every christian has a choice- are we going to believe what our past and the enemy says that we are? Or are we going to believe the truth about who God says we are? I would encourage you to believe what God says!

This will blow your mind(if you let it)!

Have you ever felt that if you sinned or if you were not walking in high level obedience that you were going to fall out of God’s favor? Ever found yourself thinking, “I am going to have to get passed this (sin, habit, etc) or start to do this certain spiritual discipline in order for God to use me”? I have! I believed that God’s relationship with me was completely dependant upon myself and my actions. Since I was never walking in complete obedience (are you?), I could never really expect blessing from God. Sometimes though, I would fast or do something I thought God would be pleased with. At that point I would have confidence to expect blessing and favor from Him. No matter which end of the spectrum that I was on, my walk with God ended up feeling like a rollercoaster more than anything else.  I was never able to live up to the “standard of perfection” I thought was required. Ever felt that way? Then I learned something that changed my life forever. Check out a definition of the word justify:

“to declare INNOCENT or GUILTLESS; absolve; acquit, to show to be just or right."

Now take a spin through these verses from Isaiah 53:

But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him (Jesus) and cause him to suffer.....by his knowledge my righteous servant (Jesus) will justify many (us), and he will bear their iniquities.

Friends, if your faith is in Christ you have been “justified” in God's eyes: declared innocent and guiltless! Jesus obeyed God the Father completely while on earth. On the cross He freely took credit for your guilt. He then transferred credit for His perfect obedience into your account making you forever blessable and perfect in the Fathers eyes. Then, God executed justice on His perfect Son by crushing and cursing Him with one of the most inhumane and painful death sentences known to humanity. Jesus received what you deserved and now you will forever receive what HE deserves-absolute blessing and favor for His absolute obedience and perfection!

Because of the cross, God will never break fellowship with you, punish you or curse you because of your sin - because He punished, cursed and broke fellowship with Jesus on the cross (“Father, Father, why have you forsaken me?”). Because your sins were already disowned on the cross in Jesus, you never will be!

And the best part- you are innocent and guiltless FOREVER! Check this out:

Hebrews 10:14

14 For by a single offering He (JESUS) has forever completely cleansed and perfected those who are consecrated and made holy (YOU).

My friend- if your faith is in Christ- God has justified you. He has made you completely innocent and blameless FOREVER! Not on the basis of your performance. On the basis of Jesus and HIS PERFORMANCE. It is so good to know that God is forever blessing, loving and favoring you because of the perfection of Jesus!
